NordicTrack manufactures a wide range of exercise equipment like elliptical trainers, exercise bikes, incline trainers, and even skiers. However, the NordicTrack treadmills are definitely the best of their products, built to be incredibly sturdy and reliable, being made with commercial grade steel to ensure durability for years. The incline feature of the NordicTrack treadmills allows you to burn five times the calories you would burn if you were running on a straight surface.
Undoubtedly the most cutting edge treadmills available in the industry due to their heavy-duty motors and the superior warranties on their products, they are the favorites of countless serious athletes, as well as regular fitness enthusiasts. However, the similarly powerful components of each NordicTrack treadmill make it extremely easy to choose any one, out of the several variants. But one must pay heed to the fact that those other differences, as subtle as might be, are definitely worth paying attention to as they can considerably impact the type and level of exercise you are able to, as well as the features you can or cannot get. So take a closer look at the top three NordicTrack treadmills to choose from, and make an informed decision!
The NordicTrack C 1650 gives you the power to control and dictate each and every part of your workout, as you can see everything, from your speed, time, distance, calories burned, heart rate, incline, and decline on the large, easy-to-read display.
The treadmill is armed with a 3.5 CHP drive system motor and is designed to make training on it safe. The larger motor case and dual cooling fans decrease the amount of vibration and heat, thereby producing a longer lasting power which is both smooth and consistent, while the 20 x 60 inch tread belt has been specially built to decrease noise and friction to give you a quieter workout.
The stretch resistant treadmill has also been engineered to stay centered on the deck to increase balance.
You can even plug your iPod into the built-in console sound system, which packs dual 2-inch speakers, to listen to your own playlist while working out.

In addition to that, the health tracking service iFit provides an advanced personal training experience, letting you record your long-term progress, and best of all, plan Google Maps routes anywhere in the world by drawing a route on the 10 inch, full-color touchscreen, to have the street view of the alleys of Paris or the Grand Canyon displayed on it, when you’re not browsing the internet on it. Depending on the route you choose, iFit will also automatically modify your incline to simulate the natural terrain of the route, even going up to a 12-percent incline to let you focus on specific muscles in your body and burn more calories.
A simple turn of the knob lets you use the custom cushioning feature to choose between a FlexSelect-cushioned deck that reduces the impact on your joints, or a firm deck which simulates running on a rough road, akin to the route you choose.Apart from an adjustable tablet holder fixed above the console, the unique design also lets you fold up the machine and store it away, aided by the telescoping EasyLift shock feature. You can also use the on-console controls to adjust the speed of the AutoBreeze, the most powerful fan used in NordicTrack equipment, or let it auto-adapt to the intensity of your workout. Finally, the C 1650 Treadmill comes with a lifetime frame and motor warranty, a 5-year parts warranty, and a 2-year labor warranty.
